Today I took the plunge, and made - Dehydrated Chicken feet! OMD they look so nasty guys, they are like purple and bruised looking and shrivled and gross. Hah. but actually, so nasty - i'm hoping chloe will like them.

I started with only 6 just to make sure they would work out, I've had them cooking for about 6 1/2 hours, I was wondering if anyone know if there is actual bone in the feet or if it's just cartilige tendon and muscle? Also should I snip the toe nails off because they are cooked? will they be hard and scratch her?

Thanks guys! also, if anyone wants to make them, themselves - they are virtually odorless while cooking =]

oh my gosh - I BOUGHT dehydrated chicken feet a couple months ago before I knew where to get fresh ones! They were $12.00 for 12 feet in a little bucket plus shipping! That's so neat that you can make your own. GREAT! Let us know what Chloe thinks! The ones I bought have pointy nails on them. I didn't cut them off.

We found dehydrated chicken feets at a dog show last spring, bought them on a whim. Funky looking things. The pups LOVED them, crunched them up and looked for more. Since then we are on bag #3.

I have not seen fresh feet in my area, so dehydrated is my only option. The pups get them as a treat and as part of their dinner on meat heavy meals.

In the event that your pup does not like them, there are ways to recycle their use. My fiance had me order more as an accessory to his Halloween costume this year, he dressed as a shaman.

I have to ask- why bother dehydrating them?

I would advise against dehydrating (aka cooking at a low temperature) anything with bone. Yes, chicken feet are bone.

Mama Nature intended them as is, and that's how we eat them!
